ID: CC17223
A superb example of Calcite pseudomorphs after Aragonite on a small matrix of sooty-black manganese oxides from Torr Works quarry (Merehead quarry) at Cranmore in Somerset, England.  Two good pseudomorphs compose this specimen, the much larger of the two measuring 3.5 x 1.7 x 1.6 cm and both built from glassy, colourless to milky-white micro-crystals of Calcite.  A great specimen.
